Johannesburg - SuperSport United defender Bryce Moon insists he is back to his
best and is now ready to challenge for a place in the Bafana Bafana
The 25-year-old has picked up 18 caps for his country, but his
international career came to a sudden halt after he was involved in a
terrible road accident in the early hours of 30 June 2009.
Moon hit pedestrian Mavis Ncube with his Mercedes Benz while
driving home from a party organised by former Bafana captain Aaron
Mokoena to celebrate the end of the FIFA Confederations Cup hosted by
South Africa. Ncube was taken to hospital and died later from head
According to reports, the case, which had been postponed, will
resume on December 5 at the Randburg Magistrate court. However, Moon
insists he is focused solely on regaining his place in the Bafana team.
"I want to regain my position in the Bafana team and I'm gonna fight for it. Hopefully, I will get a call up soon," he told Football365.co.za. "I was out for a while. Now I'm back to my full strength and potential."
The 25-year-old fullback also revealed the reason behind
Matsatsantsa's resolute defence this season, with Gavin Hunt's men
having conceded just six goals in 12 league matches.
"We have a good team spirit and understanding among the players.
We never take anything personal; if I shout at Morgan (Gould) or if
Morgan shouts at me we never take offence. We take it as positive
criticism and move on from there," he added.
Meanwhile, Moon says United are ready to beat another Soweto
giant, Orlando Pirates, when the two teams clash on Saturday evening.
"Everyone wants to beat the big teams so it is important for us
to stay where we are on the league table. We want to win, so we will go
out to do our best," he concluded.
